Sonny Bono Was Murdered: Investigator--Bono Was Killed Over US Military-Political Drug And Arms Deals

The Cover-up of Sonny Bono’s Murder

News Suppression

It is now news in Australia that new evidence has turned up that suggests that California congressman Sonny Bono was murdered and did not die in a skiing accident as we have been told repeatedly.  Although he was an American whose job was to represent Americans, as far as the mainstream United States press is concerned this news is unworthy of the attention of the people of the United States.  This is the same American press, of course, that never breathed the slightest hint of suspicion that there might have been foul play involved when the experienced skier Bono was reported to have slammed into a tree at the Heavenly Ski resort in Nevada on January 5, 1998.  There were no witnesses, the autopsy report was not released to the public, and Bono had shown himself to be something of a thorn in the side of official Washington, which is probably all the more reason for the lapdogs who call themselves journalists to have dummied up.

For Americans, the new revelations can be found buried away—and ignored by “respectable people”—in the U.S. supermarket tabloid, Globe, of April 14, which hit the news racks on April 4.  They were said to have been gathered by investigator Bob Fletcher, 66, who, according to Globe, was connected to the case even before Bono died:

He also feels partially responsible for what happened to the California congressman.  

Before Bono’s death, Fletcher had been probing the activities of high ranking U.S. military and government officials he claims were raking in millions from arms and drug deals in Central America and Southeast Asia.

He says he sent his shocking findings of corruption, including videotaped evidence, to Bono.

“I later received a call from an assistant in his offices to tell me Sonny had seen my full report and was absolutely livid about the level of corruption I made him aware of,” Fletcher tells GLOBE.

“He was going to make it his No. 1 priority when Congress resumed after the Christmas and New Year break.  He was going to go after the biggest names.

“Just 10 days later, I received a call that he was dead.  I’d heard it was suspected his offices had been bugged.  Tragically, that must have been the case.  There’s no doubt in my mind Sonny was murdered by someone who needed to silence him.”

The new evidence is the long-suppressed autopsy report, itself, which Fletcher obtained and furnished to Globe.  READMORE

      dosen’t surprise me at all. These are evil people, and if you threaten to lift the rock off ‘em, well,…

      Hmmm…this article is from 2008.

      > The new evidence is the long-suppressed autopsy report


      “The five-page autopsy report prepared by Dr. David E. Palosaari, official pathologist for Washoe County at the time, concluded that the death was caused by ‘craniocerebral injuries due to blunt force trauma (skiing accident).’”

      So the “new evidence” is NOT the autopsy report but Fletcher’s own speculations.

    • Norry

      So did any other politicians receive Bob Fletchers gathered evidence and what became of it all after Sonny Bono died? Surely he didn’t just go to Sonny Bono with it!

      “I Shot you babe” Sonny’s last song.

      So even more BS released to steer people from the real issues.

      If this story is true, Mr. Fletcher had best watch his P’s and Q’s and never be far from a crowd. If they can get to Bono, they can get to him, as well.

      ‘norry’ posits a couple of excellent questions, btw.

    • IRHologram

      There WERE anomalies in th autopsy report…the blunt force trauma blows were toward the rear side of the head and not frontal…as in running into a tree. Also, as I recall…wasn’t he found without his ski jacket on? Or anyway there was something odd about what he was wearing…blood down the back of his clothes when it should have been in front? It was so long ago that I reviewed this…obviously there was no bombshell impact.

    • albie

      This article really made me feel my sad little life was more important…job done.

    • Norry

      @albie. That’s good albie!

    • terry the censor

      Good point by norry.

      > blunt force trauma blows were toward the rear side of the head

      The article actually says: “Other injuries detailed in the document included a black eye, swollen lips, bloody nose, bruised jaw, and two upper teeth knocked out, all on the right side of the head.”

      Side, not rear.

      > blood down the back of his clothes when it should have been in front?

      Again, you assume the injuries were in the front. And perhaps you should verify your memory of where the blood was located. That might clear things up.

      This is a old thread but I gotta say my word…

      His body needs to be dug up and this needs to be investigated. Sonny was a experienced skier and experienced skiers just don’t hit a tree like that. There were also no witnesses and none of the injury’s were compatible with the tree he supposedly hit. I think this Fletcher guy needs to be investigated as well. What happened to the evidence…why did he choose to go to Sonny with this and not anyone else…whats the connection? Why was Sonny the target to get this info~there’s more to this than we know. Why did Mary his wife not have this case reopened or what about his son Chaz? There is foul play here obviously.Was it fear of them being a target as well if they opened up a can of worms? Personally if this was my father or my husband I wouldn’t rest in till this was brought to justice. How do these people sleep at night knowing this was a inside job..let alone the violent way they murdered him. Get some guts people. Sonny can’t stand up for himself 10 feet under and you have allowed these criminals to silence him and get their way. They can only hide under the rock for so long before someone lifts that rock off completely and exposes them :twisted:
